In all fairness, the user that blanked it twice gave no edit summary
whatsoever and those two blankings were the only edits that user has
ever done on Wikipedia. The objectionable part of the article is only
obvious if you read all the way through the text, whereas the signs
suggesting that the blanking is vandalism are plainly obvious.

So the other take-home message is that when blanking an article you
should give some indication of _why_ you're blanking it. Saves trouble
all around.
